Deaf and disability awareness – with Marion and Lani – will be taking place on Sunday morning at the RPI gathering. here is a little bit of what to expect….

How can we make our events more accessible to deaf and disabled people?

It is easier than you might think!

In fact, attitudes and lack of awareness create the biggest barriers for deaf and disabled people.

We will discuss practical strategies for improving accessibility which don’t require a lot of money or specialist knowledge.

We will also talk a little about the social model of disability and the history of deaf and disabled movements. What can we learn from them?

We will be drawing on experiences of living as and working with disabled people, but we are not experts!

Please feel free to discuss your own ideas and experiences, so that we can learn from each other.
